Reviews

'These actors do not look awkward - Laura Durrant, as both Emilia and Gratiano, holds a cello as if acting with a cello is entirely normal. Apparently she has danced and played cello at the same time for a physical theatre company...Mention must again be made of Durrant - her playing of Emilia, Iago's wife, is fine acting.'
The Stage- Kevin Perry.

'music is suddenly offset by Saint-Saëns glorious Swan towards the tragic end of the play, beautifully played by the incomparable Laura Durrant as Emilia, her own performance a mastery of antithesis in itself since she appears as a silent, longing musician throughout most of the production before erupting into passion towards the end.'
Alex Thornton
